AC stalls engine W124
My AC had been making noise for a couple months now, an extra ticking noise from under the hood. Worked ok though.
Yesterday I was driving on the freeway and noticed the AC was not blowing cold any more. I turned it off. Later that day I turned the AC on at a stoplight and it stalled the engine. When engaged at speed, it definately reduced engine rpm noticably and is not blowing cold.
This AC had been serviced with almost all the parts replaced about 3 years ago, but I know it had a small leak.
A friend of mine said all I need was a new AC compressor clutch.
Does this seem to be a likely solution?
